The Banff International Research Station will host the “Propagation and Stability in Evolution Equations” workshop at the UBC Okanagan campus in Kelowna, B.C., from May 26 - 31, 2024.

Propagation and interfacial phenomena are observed in many fields of sciences, such as chemistry, physics, biology, medicine, epidemiology and social sciences. They also arise in more abstract mathematical contexts, such as the study of geometric flows. The research on these themes is receiving a strong impulse in recent years, using various approaches. The number of results is rapidly growing, but several important and challenging questions remain open.

In this workshop we aim at gathering the leading experts in the fields of reaction-diffusion equations and geometric flows, as well as promising young researchers, in order to increase the interactions between the different communities.

The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a collaborative Canada-US-Mexico venture that provides an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. BIRS is supported by Canada’s Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta’s Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico’s Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT).
